One of the best parts about the holidays is getting dolled up. There's no better excuse than Christmas parties! This year, I think my festivity style is a bit more subdued than seasons past. I used to be obsessed with sequin skirts, giant statement necklaces, and glittery heels but now that my lifestyle has changed, I am reaching for pieces that are more...how shall I say this...grown-up? Listen, there's nothing wrong with pulling out all the stops and putting on the glitz and glamour, but for me, I think I've realized that I like more streamlined outfits that are simple yet polished. And of course, a red accent like my bag is perfect for the holidays.

I want to say thank you so much for the comments both on and off my blog regarding my last post. It meant a lot to me, more than you know.


  1. this is a classic holiday look and love that little red bag.


  2. You look so pretty, love the pop of red from your bag!

    1. Thank you Tara, I've been wanting a red bag for years now and I'm glad I finally found one that I love.

  3. I hear you on wanting more streamlined, polished outfits! I'll still add some sequins when I can for holidays etc. but I think that's going to be my mantra for every day outfits in 2017. This Fall I felt like I had a harder time finding good pieces because everything was so trendy and I was craving more classics.

    1. I agree, trendy clothes are everywhere! I guess they always are but I feel like every store is saturated with trendy pieces this year instead of classics. I do love your looks today on your blog though. Super pretty!

  4. I know what you mean I'm getting old and simple hehehe :) though just like you I like a pop of red (for me that's red lipstick) and sometimes a lot of red :D Red is my favourite colour though so I wear no matter what season...

  5. I love this more subdued holiday look. That red bag is fabulous!

  6. I'm all for streamlined and sophisticated, but I did just buy a pair of glitter heels and I'm kind of excited. However a little white dress is always a killer choice in my book.

  7. Love the bag, and your hair is so pretty!!!!
